PRISON PET PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM
January 16, 2010

I have been a volunteer with the PPPP for almost six years now and have to say it has been one of the best experiences I have ever had. It is an honor to be involved with a group that has such a positive influence both on unwanted dogs and people that have made a few mistakes but are trying to overcome their past. When I first heard about the program I was not enthusiastic about inmates having animals to play with while inprisoned, then I learned about all of the hard work that the inmates have to do to help the otherwise unwanted dogs to reach their full potential, either as a service dog or beloved pet. This program is such wonderful service for both the dogs, inmates and the folks that receive a service for no charge. It benefits everyone involoved, employees, volunteers and those who are inadvertently touched by the PPPP. The fundraisers are entertaining and very worthy of the time it takes to organize these events, I wholeheartedly endorse this program!
